These miniature MR11 low voltage recessed lighting fixtures have an aluminum trim and a low-profile housing. Ideal for non-insulated ceilings, shelving, cabinets, and displays.
  • One 12-volt electronic transformer is required for powering the recessed light. Be sure to select a transformer with a wattage rating equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage being powered.
  • Calculating Total Wattage: to determine the transformer you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your installation by multiplying the number of lights you intend to power by the wattage of the light bulb you intend to use. For example, for 3 lights using 20W MR11 light bulbs, you would need to select a transformer rated for at least 60 watts (3 Recessed Lights x 20W/Recessed Light = 60W).
  • MR11 Light Bulb: uses a 12-volt MR11 low voltage halogen light bulb. (Light bulb ordered separately.)
  • Light Bulb Wattage: maximum of 20 watts

Miniature MR11 Low Voltage Recessed Lighting Fixture

Submitted by |

The old house I inherited had a set of shelves for knick knacks and 3 shelves for cds under them built into a door frame. The hallway on the other side of the wall was very dark. So I had the shelves rebuilt with glass shelves and 5 wooden shelves for the cds with doors on each side. The glass shelves continue to hold knick knacks. Putting the recessed lighting in the top of the door frame throws light on the knick knacks but also throws light in the dark hallway.

Small enough to mount in the top of the door frame

Question from Meloney:

We are wanting to put these lights in 2 separate wall niches, do we have to use transformers? This is a new home and they have prewired for lights.

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes you will likely need transformers. Homes in the USA run on 120V whereas these lights run on 12V. The transformer will step down your home's 120V to 12V.

Question from Mikelle:

Would an MR11 LED light bulb fit in this fixture to replace the halogen light bulb?

Answer from Pegasus:

LED MR11 light bulbs should fit but it must be suitable for enclosed fixtures. Otherwise too much heat will be trapped in the fixture.

Question from Cort Wyss:

I would like to install 4-6 NM242's in the hollow alumawood rafters of my pergola which measure 6.5in x 2in. I see that you recommend that all the fixtures be within 36in of the transformer but my application would be to have them spaced up to 4' apart with the further one as far as 15 feet from the transformer. Will this work? What gauge wire should I use?

Answer from Pegasus:

Cort, The reason that we recommend placing the fixtures that close is to avoid a problem known as voltage drop. When you have long runs of wire, sometimes the voltage drops significantly by the time it reaches the fixture. This causes the lights to appear dimmer than normal. By keeping within a short distance, this problem can be avoided. If you have one fixture 15 feet away, then you will likely have very uneven lighting among the light fixtures. The light farthest away from the transformer will appear significantly dimmer than the lights 4 feet away.

Question from Luke:

I want to use a magnetic transformer remotely. I have a 150-watt one, can I use it?

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes, you can use a magnetic transformer to power these lights.

Question from Sarah:

Does the MR11-242 fixture meet title 24 requirements?

Answer from Pegasus:

Sarah - No, it does not
